Who’s this Klanger? An Interview with Kata Nemeth
Thursday, October 12
This week we are sitting down with our Lead Peoples Business Partner, Kata. We learn about her Klang story, her love for clothing design, and more!
How did you find your way to Klang?
The story of how I found Klang was a super traditional one. Before Klang, I was studying fashion design here in Berlin, and at the same time, I was also working at Zalando as a Content Creator and later at another tech company as a Cultural Manager. Then I think I saw the advertisement for Klang’s position on Glassdoor and I applied there. It all went very fast and I started to work here as a Studio Manager. Since then, I took over the People Ops team and now I am the Lead People Business Partner.
What is your favorite part about working as the Lead People Business Partner?
I like the fact that my position gets me in contact with a lot of different people with diverse perspectives. In my current role, I have touchpoints with all departments, which gives me a better understanding of what challenges they have and how the game is made. So, my favorite part of the role is definitely the people that I am working with, as well as the fact that I am constantly learning. To be honest, this is one of the main reasons that I’ve stayed here for almost four years. I always find something new to learn about and work on.
What excites you most about SEED?
I am most excited about how SEED is focused on collaboration and bringing people together. As you can see it’s the same things that make me excited about my role (collaborating with other people and finding other perspectives). Also, coming from a design background I really like the aesthetic of SEED. This was very attractive to me during the hiring process and was a big part of why I decided to work at Klang. I like that it is a very creative company whose aesthetics resonate with me.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I have two dogs and I really enjoy spending time with them outside, so in my free time I like to go on long walks with them. I also really enjoy making clothes, mainly for myself and some of my friends to have something fun to wear when we go out. Not only is the creation process rewarding, but it’s also a lot less expensive than buying clothes in shops. Lastly, one of my favorite things in the whole world is listening to and dancing to music, so I also really like to go out and party. And Berlin is a great place for this.
What is your favorite part about living in Berlin?
I think the best part about living in Berlin is the fact that the city offers so many different possibilities. If you want to be in nature, you can find a cozy spot in a park (there are so many parks here and I love how green it is). But if you want a cultural activity or to go to a museum or exhibition, you can find that as well. You can also find some really amazing parties. You can basically do anything you want and you can always find something that fits your current mood. So I really like that: the city can offer me exactly what I need the moment that I need it.
